So, it’s my birthday. I’m 36 today. I feel old af while simultaneously feeling like I can’t possibly be over 30. I’m not feeling too great and didn’t have anything planned today, but I decided to put on makeup. Not a full face, but enough to make me feel more like a human. La Roche…

I don’t normally post my daily makeup (mostly because I don’t wear makeup every day), but I really like the way today’s turned out. I was going for a natural look since I was just working and then picking Dan up from the train station. On my face: Benefit Cosmetics Hello Happy Foundation, shade 4…

I hate shaving almost as much as I hate washing my brushes. It’s just so time-consuming, and because I’m a huge klutz and my legs are usually covered in bruises and/or scrapes, it’s occasionally also painful. But I don’t like walking around with hairy man legs, so it’s something I suffer through. I’ve been using…

By now I’m sure you’ve heard that beautyblender launched a foundation. It’s vegan and (supposedly) full coverage, matte, long wearing and good for all skin types. It’s also exclusive to Sephora.

So my Pride weekend is over and my wifey had an awesome bachelorette party. We drank, we danced, we ate many things. We also got her wedding suit. Yay productivity. I feel like I got hit by a truck. My mission as Best Lady was to ensure a fabulous, fun filled weekend for the bride,…

Tarte has had a rough few months. Between the Shape Tape shade debacle, the boring releases and the April Fool’s joke gone wrong, they’re struggling when it comes to PR. I generally like their products, but they’ve made some missteps. Now they’re re-releasing their “sister brand”, Awake Beauty. I don’t remember this brand ever being…

So… there’s a new blush trend. It’s yellow. Like, actual fucking yellow. As if someone was sitting in a field of dandelions with a toddler and allowed them to rub the pollen all over their face. And it’s shimmery. I don’t know why this is a thing. I’m practically speechless. Thoughts?

Hello internet friends! I’m currently sitting in our new place in Albany! We arrived Friday evening, signed our lease and spent the entire weekend running errands and attempting to get our shit together somewhat so that Dan could have a functional home before we move the bulk of our stuff. I think we did pretty…

Because it’s really damned important. To be completely honest, I haven’t always been the hardcore sunscreen proponent that I am now. I didn’t start wearing sunscreen on my face regularly until I was in my early 30s, and somehow, miraculously, I’ve managed to escape having any noticeable sun damage on my face. I’m still not…
